Moving or staying in one place. All you need to do is keep track of how many minutes you stepped for! Every minute you step for is equal to a certain number of steps. Use a clock, stopwatch or phone to keep track of minutes! When you are finished add up the total number of minutes you stepped for.
    Then multiply that number by the steps in this chart: One minute of running= 150 One minute of jogging= 125 One minute of walking= 100 (Total number of minutes______ x steps on chart= Your total steps for the challenge!

  • Dear Whitman students, families and community-

    I hope you are doing well.   Yesterday, Whitman staff came together for a virtual staff meeting.  This week teachers are engaging with online professional development that covers new learning platforms and virtual learning for students. 

    Virtual Learning

    Virtual learning for students will begin Monday, April 6.  Over the next few days, teachers will begin to reach out to families to share the plan for the coming weeks.  Next week the plan is that teachers provide instruction for math and English language arts in grades K-5. Things are constantly evolving. There are going to be ideas that work beautifully and others that do not go as planned. We will be working hard to determine our new normal for our community.  Thank you in advance for all of your support.

    Devices and Internet

    The district has sent a survey to families to see who might need to borrow a student Chromebook for their children to access online learning or who might need access to the internet.  At this time, the survey link is closed as they are scheduling the first wave of distribution to students in grades 4-12. The survey link will be sent out again soon for families who still need to request devices or help accessing the internet.  There will be distribution for students in grades K-3 soon. If you know of a family who does not have access to the internet to fill out this survey, please offer to help fill it out for them on your device.

    We will continue to post links to learning and relevant information on our school website, Facebook page, and through emails.  Please continue to be safe and take care of yourselves and your families. We miss you all and hope to see you soon.
